    HELP! Brother turned on ski without any water running through it!

    I own a RXTX 260 and my brother turned it on without any water running through it to make sure it turned on before taking it out but left it on for too long and started smoking a little and beeping, I then went out (pissed needless to say) and turned on with a hose running thru the exhaust to see if it was ok, and the check engine light was on... Any ideas what it could be, or how worried I actually need to be? please help

    Exhaust might of melted. That's what usually happens, and check your carbon seal if it melted as well..

    how long??? Also you should've not put water through it when it was blazing hot man...You had to wait until it cools down.

    Run it on hose or take it out and see if you see water in the oil. You may have blown a head gasket.

    Check the resonator. its made of plastic and usually is the first to melt.
    Then check all the rubber hoses in the exhaust system.
    Engine light and smoke was probably from the exhaust over temp.
